EGNER MEMORIAL CHAPEL 10 ADMINISTRATION BUILDING 11 MEMORIAL 12 HALL 13 MEMORIAL HALL DEDICATION On Saturday, February 6, 1954 the dream of each Muhlenberg alumnus was realized when Memorial Hall, the new physical education building was dedicated in a brief, solemn program. Dr. Victor L. Johnson, Professor of History, presided over the ceremony attended by more than a thousand friends of the college which opened the edifice for official use by the college community. In the main address of welcome and acknowledg- ments, Attorney Henry V. Scheirer, Esq., a member of the board of trustees included special words of thanks to the Women’s Auxiliary and the Student Body for the support rendered by them in the fund raising drive which was over-subscribed by friends among the alumni and Allen- town community. The program was concluded with the unveiling of a plaque honoring the Muhlenberg alumni who lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars and the Korean engagement. The building was dedicated to the memory of these men. Attorney Scheirer and Dr. Johnson Opposite page Top to bottom: Groundbreaking Cornerstone Laying Partial Completion MEMORIAL HALL - COMPLETED Memorial Hall, the new physical education building at Muhlenberg College, is an architectural gem which has complete facilities for intercollegiate athletics as well as for an intensive intramural and physical education program. The $650,000 structure was made possible through the generosity of the Allentown community, the alumni, and the Lutheran church as well as many friends of the college. Memorial Hall has a seating capacity of 3,556 and from each seat an unobstructed view of the 96’ X 50’ playing court. Four retractable side baskets are suspended from the ceiling and when lowered divide the floor into two regulation size basketball courts for intramural and gym use. There are two large scoreboards on the north and south walls, and four special platforms provide space for television coverage. The lobby is tiled and indirectly lighted. Three large trophy cases are built directly into its south wall. A refreshment stand and roomy athletic office connect with the lobby. On the first floor under the permanent bleacher seats are located three large locker rooms with shower an equipment storage space. Second story space is utilized by the minor sports such as wres- tling, weight lifting and hand ball. Offices for the coaching and physical education staff occupy the remaining space. Memorial Hall’s modern facade makes this imposing structure a valuable and appreciated addi- tion to the campus of Muhlenberg College. 16 Tbe Inauguration of JOHN CONRAD SEEGER8 as tbe Siaetli PresiJent o£ IVfulileiilier College SATURDAY, MAY 2, 1953 lliOO A. M., D. S. T. MUHLENBERG COLLEGE CAMPUS Allentown, Pennsylvania THE INAUGURATION Dr. Seegers receives the key and charter from Attorney Balmer The chief academic highlight of the 1952-53 school year on the Muhlenberg College campus was the inauguration of J. Conrad Seegers, Ph. D., Litt. D., LL. D., as sixth president of Muhlenberg College. Dr. Seegers, ’13, was the first alumnus of his alma mater invested with the symbols of presi- dential authority. The key, charter, and charge were presented to him by Attorney George B. Balmer, LL. D., the President of the Board of Trustees. Dr. Seegers returned to his alma mater after a twenty year stay in Philadelphia at Temple Uni- versity where he held the position of Dean of the School of Education. His predecessor was the Rev. Morris S. Greth, Ph. D., Litt. D., professor of soci- ology. Dr. Greth served for a year as acting presi- dent after the resignation of Dr. Levering Tyson in June, 1951. Several hundred invited guests and two hun- dred and fifty official delegates thronged the Egner Memorial Chapel and heard the Rev. Franklin Clark Fry, D. D., LL. D., L. H. D., Litt. D., Presi- dent of the United Lutheran Church in America, deliver a challenge to service. A reception and luncheon banquet concluded the formal program for the stately occasion.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Muhlenberg College has a long history of serv- ice, reaching back over more than a century. It is a history which reflects the faith, the courage, the imagination of many people. Under the name of Muhlenberg, and under the guidance of the Min- isterium of Pennsylvania, it began in the old build- ing at Fourth and Walnut Streets as a small institu- tion. But it began with conviction and purpose. That conviction and purpose have been maintained and preserved to the end that a liberal education, within a Christian framework, be provided to serve community, state, nation, and church. During that history, Muhlenberg has produced thousands of graduates, whose influence has been felt over the world. About fifty years ago the College was moved to its present site, where on a beautiful campus the present attractive and substantial buildings have been erected. These last fifty years have been years of steady progress. Crises have arisen and have been met, storms have been weathered. We have lived through wars and recessions and depressions, because men and women have believed in the College and in the work it does, because alumni and other friends have been loyal and true. That is the heritage of Muhlenberg men. It is because of that heritage that we exist as a free and independent college, able to offer young men the advantages in which this kind of college be- lieves. Those advantages are partly these physical ones referred to above. But beyond these are the advantages which come from opportunity for study, for social growth, for individual development. Much of that opportunity derives from serving in student government, in organizations, through activities, as well as from more strictly intellectual pursuits. We believe these contribute greatly to growth. This book is a record of part of that growth as you, students, have set it down on paper. May it long bring back to you happy memories of your years at Muhlenberg. 20 SHERWOOD R. MERCER, A. M. Dean of Faculty 21 ADMINISTRATION CHARLES R. STECKER, JR., A. B. Assistant Treasurer GEORGE A.

Chuck Gordon and his orchestra provided the smooth, danceable music while the intermissions were filled with the lively tempos of Bill Davies and his Dixieland combo. Decorations for the “Dreamland” theme were abstract settings in light blue backdrops. Highlight of the evening was the crowning of Miss Peggy Boran as Queen of the Prom by her predecessor. Miss Nancy Click. Miss Boran was escorted by Jack Geissinger ’55. Attractive gifts were presented to the queen and her court. The affair was well received and considered a note- worthy social vent. 1953-54 One of the main social events of the year sponsored by the Class of 1954 was the Senior Ball, held in the Ballroom of the Americus Hotel on Friday, December 11, 1953. Larry Fotine and his orchestra provided mellow music for the “Winter Wonderland” affair, which was highlighted by group singing at intermission. Graduation weekend was a full one for all the members of the Class of 1954. The Graduation Ball held at the Americus featured the smooth music of Bill Davies and his orchestra. Saturday June 5, was complete with a Class Day program and farewell party at Flickinger’s grove. Baccalaureate services were held in the college chapel on the sixth and Monday the seventh saw Seniors receive their diplomas in formal services. Dr. and Mrs. Seegers entertain the graduating Seniors.

MOYER Class of 1955 A man who gained our admiration for his determination to succeed despite his infirmities. 79 THE CLASS OF 1955 1952-53 The class of 1955 as sophomores were greatly outnumbered, and dropped both the tug-of-war and pushball contests to the Fresh- men, but in a challenge football contest, the Sophs whitewashed the Frosh, 19-0. Topping the social calendar w as the an- nually sponsored Soph-Frosh Hop, a masquer- ade gala at the Frolics Ballroom. The class also played its part in the College student development campaign which went well over the expected goal. As a project the class undertook the sale of keepsake plates, which commemorate the inauguration of President J. Conrad Seegers. 1953-54 Highlighting the class of 1955’s activities, as well as the Muhlenberg social events for 1954, was the very colorful Junior Prom. The affair took place on March 26, at spacious Castle Gardens, with Elliot Lawrence’s highly regarded orchestra providing music for dancing pleasure. The ballroom was appropriately dec- orated in a Spring theme, which was featured by a huge central floral piece. Adding to the festive occasion was the crowning of Miss Shirley Moore as the Prom Queen, by last year’s queen. Peg Boran. Plans were made to adopt a class dedica- tory right for Clarence Moyer, who lost his life during the Spring semester.

Lancaster 83 THE CLASS OF 1956 1952-53 1953-54 Well informed about the traditional Fresh- man tribunal, the Class of 1956, as Frosh, plunged into regulations ’midst trembling hearts and old grey bonnets. The class as yet lacked organization, but with some 250 strong they faced the Soph threat. Muddy sneakers and cast-off dungares were reminders of the hard fought tug-of-war victory at Cedar Creek. The class also captured the pushball event, and though the Sophs took the football game, 12-0, regs were lifted by Hallowe’en. The annual West Hall Christmas party was a great success, and the class also strongly supported the Soph-Frosh Hop and the Muh- lenberg College Development Fund. The Class of ’56 opened the 1953-54 term under the guidance of the newly elected Presi- dent, Irving Thomas. The class suffered defeat at the hands of the Freshmen in all three Soph- Frosh events: tug-of-war, pushball, and foot- ball. The Sophomores put up a good fight but bowed to the overwhelming numbers of the Freshmen. The Soph-Frosh Hop came off quite suc- cessfully considering the impossible weather. Matt Gillespie’s orchestra provided music for “General Pete’s Prance” at the Frolics Ball- room. As a project, the class collaborated with the Class of 1957 in sponsoring the sale of Muhlenberg jackets. L.eft to right: Roelim.

YOUNG A. B. Allentown THOMAS P. ZAHN A. B. Lehighton HERMAN E. ZIEGER B. S. Philadelphia THE CLASS OF 1957 Last September 265 young men became official Mules. Hardly had they arrived when they crossed swords with the Freshmen Tri- bunal. The Freshmen revenged their early humiliations in a short, but decisive, tug-of-war in which they pulled all of their Sophomore oppressors into Cedar Creek. With the first victory still in their hearts, the Freshmen again met the Sophomores; this time on the push- ball field. Once again they won an overwhelm- ing victory, and this time their independence was secured. Just when the tumult of orientation seemed to die down, the college fraternities organized many parties and dinners so that the Frosh could get to know the brothers and to learn the advantages of fraternity life. The college saw the spirit of the Freshmen again in the college jacket campaign and at the Soph-Frosh Hop for which a great number of Freshmen turned out, despite a terrific snow storm. Soon after, the Freshmen were called upon to make their contributions to the college. Members of the Freshmen class solicited money from their neighbors and classmates for the College Development Fund. The success of the project was commensurate with the long, hard work of the Frosh solicitors. This is the end, but it is only the end of the beginning; for many great things can yet be expected from the class of ’57.

Allentown 97 »VVWVWWWWW»V%VWV»W»W»WW»W ATHLETICS FOOTBALL ’52 Captain Dean Bohs FOOTBALL — 1952 Muhlenberg Football fans were sure as they awaited the 1952 season that their favorites would improve on the previous year’s dismal record of one win and eight losses. Tom Triplett, starting his second season at the helm on the Cardinal and Gray gridders, had 16 lettermen in the fold, including an experienced backfield.

The Mules ran into a big-time opponent in their season’s opener with Rutgers, but put on a brilliant exhibition of hard, smart football and left the field with the score knotted at 19-19 — a moral victory for the Bergmen. The host Scarlet team got off to a 12-0 half-time advantage, but the Mules were not to be denied as they thrilled the 8.000 fans with a dazzling second half rally. Triplett’s experiment in shifting quarterback George Mills to end paid off handsomely for he hauled down two Jim Skidmore aerials for touch- downs. It was truly a team victory, but Dave Ehlers, who gained 64 yards on the ground, and Jim Colagreco, whose punts averaged 45 yards, deserve special mention. The Berg’ line performed magnifl- ciently, led by Captain Dean Bohs at tackle. Bucknell’s Bisons moved into Allentown on the crest of a 14-game winning streak and overwhelmed the Mules, 46-12. Brad Myers and Bert Talmage, the Herd’s fabulous “Touchdown Twins,” lived up to all advance notices accumulating 334 yards between them. Dave Ehlers provided a bright moment in an otherwise dismal evening for the home fans with a spectacular 100-yard touchdown runback of a Buck- nel! kickoff in the first period. Larry Dotter, a con- sistently good halfback, added the second Muhlen- berg touchdown in the final period on a one-yard smash through the line. The Mules lost more than the game to the Bisons. Lineman Bob Bertram was lost for tbe sea- son, and defensive ace Jerry Carroll and George Mills were put out of action indefinitely. 101 ’52 The Roaring Lions of Albright pleased a Reading Homecoming Day crowd with a 13-7 upset of the Mules as the season reached the halfway mark. Two minutes before the game’s end, Pete Ascione, stalwart Muhlenberg tackle, blocked an Albright punt on its own four-yard line, but the Mules failed to push the ball across in four plays. Larry Dotter racked up the lone Muhlenberg score, and Bob Gimble added the extra point. Albright tallied its first TD on a 72-yard sprint by Bruce Tenley and the second on a pass play. Lafayette coach Steve Hokuf decided to rest his hopes for a victory over Muhlenberg on a west- ern style passing game. The Mules, however, found this strategy to their liking, and rolled up an im- pressive 37-0 triumph. The halftime score was 12-0. The defensive half of Muhlenberg’s two pla- toons walked off with the game’s laurels, restricting the Eastonians to 14 completions in 49 passing attempts, intercepting five passes, and yielding but 23 yards on the ground. Larry Dotter tallied a pair of touchdowns on line bucks; Jackie McDonald added two more as the receiver of Skidmore tosses; and Jim Colagreco and Maneth Gravell each scored once. 102 ’52 Gettysburg College celebrated the inaguration of its new President, W. C. Langsam, by battering the injury-riddled Mules, 32-7, at Gettysburg. The Bullets crossed the Muhlenberg goal line three times in the second period, and then added two more touchdowns after halftime before Jim Skid- more was able to sneak over for a ’Berg score. It just wasn’t Muhlenberg’s day. Trechak and Druckenmiller move in. Aided by a revamped lineup, the Mules treated a Parent’s Day gathering of about 4,500 to a victory over the University of Delaware, 21-12. Joe Trechak was the big gun for the ’Bergmen, tallying two TD’s. Collins “Butch” Haines and Jerry Hargrove rendered able offensive assistance. Trechak broke off tackle for a 38-yard scoring jaunt on the opening play of the second period. Bob Gimble added the extra point, but Delaware rebounded to assume a 12-7 halftime lead. The Mules were not to be denied though, clinching the verdict with touchdowns by Trechak and Hargrove. 103 ’52 The Mules invaded Lehigh’s Taylor Stadium to meet their archrivals, the Engineers, and threatened to run off with the game, scoring two early touch- downs. The Brown and White recovered, however, and beat the Mules, 26-13. A Skidmore-Mills pass was good for the first Muhlenberg tally while Jerry Hargrove recorded the second with a line buck. Lehigh, led by running back Davey Walters, retaliated three times before the half closed, and added one more in the late going. Muhlenberg was favored to close its season with a win when it met Franklin and Marshall on Homecoming Day on the Muhlenberg Field. But the muddy weather and the careful play of the Diplomats combined to put the Mules on the short end of a 7-0 score. Both teams had only one good scoring oppor- tunity throughout the contest. The Dips capitalized on their when it presented itself early in the game. Muhlenberg started a drive of its own shortly there- after which carried 85 yards to the F M one, but it failed there.

The victor was LaSalle, followed closely by Lafayette and St. Josephs.

Dr. Andrew Erskine was selected as C oach of ’Berg’s first fencing team and did a masterful job in round- ing his men into shape.

Picking up wins for Berg were Zandy Adelson and George Goldenbaum in the foil, while Bill Wormley and Marshall Reber garn- ered points in the Eppe. Carl Schimmel score in the Sabre.

The opening game of the season saw Muhlen- berg being handed a 3 to 1 defeat at the hands of Lehigh University. George Lea scored the lone goal for the Cardinal and Gray. Two goals scored by LaSalle in the final quar- ter was enough to hand the Cardinal and Gray hoot- ers their second loss by a 4-2 score. Senior Dave Noble scored both goals for Muhlenberg. In their next encounter, the Mules scored three goals in the second half to grab a well earned tie with a good Ursinus team. The game was tied at the end of regular play and the two extra periods were scoreless. Following a loss to F. M., Muhlenberg tra- veled to Swarthmore and was decisively beaten by a fast moving and highly powered Swarthmore cluh, 7-0. Captain Noble and A1 Billy after the ball.

Dave Noble accounted for Muhlenberg’s lone tally in the 2-1 defeat. After losing to Lafayette, the Muhlenberg hooters traveled to Philadelphia where they bowed to a better than average Drexel team in a hard fought game. Berg rose to the heights in the next game, and an experienced, rugged, and highly rated Rutgers soccer team had to settle for a 3-3 tie with the Cardinal and Gray hooters. Trailing 3-0 at half- time, ’Berg came back strongly to score three goals in the second half. The two extra periods were scoreless. This was by far Muhlenberg’s best game in the last two years. Although Muhlenberg outplayed a strong Stevens soccer team in a drizzling rain, the Cardinal and Gray hooters were on the short end of a 2-0 score, to end the season. Although the season’s record was 2 ties and 7 losses, the inexperienced ’Berg hooters gave a good account of themselves, and prospects look good for the future. 113 SOCCER Bottom row — left to right — Mast, B., Washahaugli, Beckman, K., Gibbs, Gallagher, Lea, Cressman.

After a long lay off of ten days, the hooters traveled to New Brunswick, N. J., to oppose a classy Rutg ers squad. With bitter cold and a blind- ing snow storm causing adverse playing conditions, ’Berg’s hooters sank to an 8-1 defeat. The team closed the season by journeying to Stevens Tech, and once again they were jolted, this time by a 1-0 score. The team did well in the early part of the season, but was later hampered by in- juries to key players. The spirit was high for the opening encounter against LaSalle. The Mule hooters manhandled La- Salle and placed a sound 4-0 thrashing on the visiting Philadelphians. The soccer team continued its winning ways with a decisive victory over Lehigh by a 2-0 score at Lehigh. Impressive for the Mule aggregation in this game were Barry Mast, Ken Gallagher, and George Gibbs. Goalie Marv Cressman proved to be a stalwart on defense. All good things finally come to an end and so the Mule’s winning streak was abruptly halted by an aggressive Franklin and Marshall team. Striking for three goals in the last half, F and M’s hooters erased a one point Muhlenberg lead and the Cardi- nal and Gray went down to defeat.

A group of returning veterans, Harry Ambrose, Bob Lessel, Pat Teta, and Bill Raupp, formed the nucleus of the team. The Mules captured their first match of the season when they defeated Lafayette at the Lehigh Country Club course, 5-4. Outstanding scores were turned in by Lessel, Ambrose, and Teta. Playing consistent golf, the ’Berg linksters went on to win their next two matches on their home course as they topped Gettysburg and Moravian, 5-4 and 5 -3%. The golfers played their remaining matches of the season on opponents’ links, and did not regain their early season winning form. They first traveled to Philadelphia and were dumped by Villanova, 8-1. Dick Ohlweiler came through with the only ’Berg win. Lehigh outclassed the Mule linksters in the next match, winning 9-0 at Bethlehem. In the final two contests of the season the Mules played good golf but were edged out by Albright and Moravian by identical 5-4 scores. This left the season’s record at 3 wins and 4 losses. Left to right: Ohlweiler, Raupp, Teta, Stianche, Deibert, Lessel, Ambrose. GOLF 1954 By means of a qualification match, golf coach Tom Triplett was able to select the top eight men to represent Muhlenberg on the links for the 1954 golf season. Muhlenberg’s golf squad opened the season against Albright at the Lehigh Country Club and came through in fine style by notching an 8 2 to Yo victory. The next two matches resulted in defeats for the Mule linksters as Lafayette and Lehigh took Muhlenberg by 8 V 2 to and 8 to 1 scores, respectively. Paced by Bob Lessel, the Mules next teed off against Moravian and came home with an impressive 7-2 win. Tom Triplett’s linksters then suffered their third defeat of the season at the hands of the LaSalle golf team by a 7 to Yo score. The Mules again took the measure of the Moravian golfers by hanging a 7% to IY 2 defeat on them. The last two encounters of the season saw Tom Triplett’s crew go down to defeat. Gettysburg placed a sound 8 % to Y 2 trouncing on ’Berg and the Mules could not score a point against a strong Villanova club, losing 9 to 0. Thus the Mule golfers ended the season with a record of 3 wins and 5 defeats.

A strong Lehigh team dominated the afternoon as it walloped Gettysburg and Muhlenberg in a triangular meet by the score of 831 2 to 37 to 33 2 at the Lehigh track. The Mules salvaged some glory as Bill Kynett, stellar quarter miler, took a first in the 440 yd. run, and Don Landis took a first in the mile run. Landis and Haney off to a fast start in the mile.

Grabbing a bit of glory, Muhlenberg ended the season with a 63-63 deadlock against Ursinus. Co- Captains Don Landis and Tom Haney ended their running careers at Berg with stellar performances. Landis was the star of the meet as he garnered a first in both the 880 and the mile. Haney took a first in the two-mile run and placed second to Landis in the mile. Veteran sprinter Don Tihansky breezed to a first in the 100 yd. dash and placed third in the broad jump. 141 BASEBALL SCOREBOARD Muhlenberg Opponents 1 Navy 5 4 Scr anton 7 3 Temple 3 6 LaSalle 5 3 Moravian 5 2 Lafayette 5 4 Lebanon Valley 3 4 Moravian 3 1 Villanova 10 7 Albright 12 0 Lafayette 11 5 Bucknell 4 2 L.

Two freshmen, Tony Saddler and George Erie rounded out the staff. The catching position was held down by Ereshmen Chuck Wiggins, Erank Peters and Barry Mast. The infield shaped up with veterans Jeff Stryker at second and Captain Dave Noble at third, and two Freshmen, Lefty Corneliess at first and Tom Weber at shortstop. Two outfield posts were filled by capable veterans Bill Kern and Jack Pollitt and the third post was taken by Freshman Marty Gilbert. The Mules opened the season by engaging the U. S. Naval Academy at Annapolis. Coach Lawson sent Frank Sprovier to the hill and he turned in a very creditable performance against the Midship- men, but ’Berg was limited to only two hits and lost. 5-1.

After losing to Scranton 7-4, the Mules tied a highly rated Temple team 3-3, and defeated LaSalle in a thriller, 6-5. Lawson’s foices lost to Moravian and Lafayette in the next two games by 5-3 and 5-2 scores, but the losing streak was snapj)ed with a decisive vic- tory over Lebanon Valley, 4-3. Muhlenberg next edged Moravian in a thriller, 4-3. The game was almost cancelled in the eighth inning because of rain with the score tied 3-3. The rain stopped, however, and Dave Noble hit the first pitch for a home-run to win the game for Berg. The Berg baseballers next nosedived to three consecutive losses in loosely played games. After losing to Villanova 10-1 and Albright by 12-7, Lawson’s men journeyed to Lafayette and were walloped by a very good Leopard team, 11-0. The Mules got back in the winning column with a 5-4 win over Bucknell behind the fine hurling of Tony Saddler. However, F. M. edged the Bergmen in a tight 10 inning duel, 3-2. In the last game of the season, Berg drubbed an old Lehigh Valley rival, Lehigh, by a 9-4 count. Dave Noble and Art Henne made the ir last appear- ance for th,e Cardinal and Gray. However, the stellar play of a number of freshmen throughout the season gave Coach Lawson high hopes for next year. 143 BASEBALL 1953-54 Muhlenberg 8 SCOREBOARD Opponents LaSalle 9 12 Scranton 0 8 Wilkes 3 5 Penn 7 16 Temple 7 29 St. Joseph’s 10 2 Lehigh 3 1 Moravian 0 3 Albright 1 3 Lafayette 2 13 Franklin Marshall 0 3 Moravian 2 8 Delaware 0 1 Gettysburg 7 0 Lehigh 3 The baseball team, under the guidance of the newly appointed head coach Bob Hicks, showed signs of being a well-balanced club in early spring practice. The red-capped Mules impressed everyone with their hustling spirit and the squad came up with a good seasonal record of ten wins against five defeats. The ’Berg nine inaugurated its baseball cam- paign by playing four teams on a long five day road trip. The diamondmen opened the season against a strong LaSalle aggregation. Frank Sproviero, a chunky southpaw, was assigned the task of holding down the Philadelphians. The game was closely fought, but LaSalle had just enough punch to win, 9-8. Traveling to Scranton, the Mules rgeistered an easy 12-0 victory over Scranton University. Speed- bailer Tony Saddler went the route for ’Berg and notched his first victory. The big bats of Adrian “Lefty” Cornieliess, Jack Pollitt, and Bill Kern were instrumental in winning the contest.

Continuing on the road, the Mules next engaged the Wilkes College nine. Freshman Ed Wasmuth started for Bob Hicks’ nine and Frank Sproviero came on to finish the game and receive credit for an 8-3 win. ’Berg’s two game winning streak was abruptly halted by the University of Pennsylvania in a close encounter. The Mules were in the game all the way, but a little loose playing gave the game to Penn, 7-.5. Bob Hicks’ charges put on another brilliant batting display against Temple, winning 16-7. Vet- eran outfielder Jack Pollitt led the Mules at bat as Saddler recorded his second victory of the young season. The Mules, playing their initial home game of the season, put on a tremendous performance for the home crowd. ’Berg rolled up a record-break- ing score of 29 to 10 against the St. Joseph nine. Leftfielder Bill Kern had six for six and hit for the circuit with a homer, triple, double, and single. Once again the Muhlenberg winning skein was ended, but this time by the Lehigh Engineers. In a nip and tuck battle, Lehigh scored all of its runs in the last two innings to win 3-2. Tony Saddler absorbed his first defeat of the season. Excellent pitching by Frank Sproviero gave the Mules an exciting 1 to 0 victory over the Mo- ravian Greyhounds at Bethlehem in the next game. Albright and Lafayette were the next clubs to bite the dust at the hands of the Mules. ’Berg won by scores of 3-1 and 3-2, respectively. The ’Berg- men again displayed their power by walloping Franklin and Marshall, 13-0. Freshman catcher Dick Leber was very impressive in the hitting depart- ment, and Tony Saddler pitched a stylish six-hit shutout. ‘--I- Hict, " ' inner’s smile. Bill Kern uets back in safely at first. 145 A close play at third. Hoelimann guarding the Irag. It took the Mules 13 innings to gain the decision in their next encounter against Mo- ravian. A single by Dick Leber drove borne third baseman Ron Hoehniann with the win- ning run in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Mules a 3 to 2 verdict. Fanning ten Delaware Blue Hens, Tony Saddler gained his third shutout victory of the season and his fifth victory in leading the Mules to an 8-0 win over Delaware. The Mule defense proved to be almost airtight. The Gettysburg Bullets finally halted Berg’s winning ways of gaining a 7-1 win. In the last game of the season, the Mule nine suffered its fifth defeat and its first shutout in losing to Lehigh, 3-0, thus finishing the season w ' ith a fine 10-5 record, the best in re- cent years.

Head Cheerleader RON SHANE Muhlenberg’s fine cheerleading squad, cap- tained for two consecutive years by Ron Shane, participated faithfully in the 1952-53 and 1953-54 athletic programs of the college. New pep songs and yells were introduced and popularized, and the M-Book’s compilation of songs and cheers was revised and enlarged. An innovation made in the fall of 1952 was the participation of girls from Cedar Crest College as members of the cheerleading squad, lending a co-ed flavor to dear old ’Berg. This experiment was so successful that it was carried on through the 1953-54 college term. 147 TENNIS 1953 SCOREBOARD Muhlenberg Opponents 2 St. Joseph’s 6 7 Moravian 2 6 Gettysburg 2 1 Lehigh 8 2 Lafayette 7 5 Temple 4 0 Haverford 9 0 Swarthmore 9 Representing Muhlenberg on the tennis courts for this 1953 season were Ron Shane, Marty Acker, Dave Carr, Mike Egan, Keith Paulisen, Jay Krevsky, Dick Lichtenwalner. and Ron Lauchmen. Coach Shankweiler’s protegees suffered defeat in the first match of the season against St. Joseph’s, 6- 2, at the Oakmont Courts. Shane and Krevsky were the only victors. The Mules tasted victory with successive wins over Moravian, 7-2, and Gettysburg, 6-2. Against strong Lehigh, only the Shane-Acker doubles team emerged victorious as the team went down, 8-1. Freshman Dave Carr performed nobly against Lafayette as he won in singles and teamed with Egan to win in doubles, but his mates were unable to stop the strong stroking of the Leopards and lost, 7- 2. In a thriller threatened by rain, the doubles team of Krevsky-Lauchmen won the deciding match and the Mules edged Temple, 5-4. In their last two encounters, the Mules met powerful Haverford at Haverford and more power- ful Swarthmore at home and each time was defeated, 9-0.

TENNIS 1954 The 1954 Muhlenburg Tennis team, under the direction of Coach John V. Shankweiler, boasted a host of returning veterans. Among them were Ron Shane and Marty Acker, the number one and two men on the team, respectively, last season. Oj)ening the season at home, Dr. Shankwei- ler’s men ran roughshod over the netmen of Tem- ple 8-1. ’Berg lost only one singles match while Marty Acker, Dave Carr, Mike Egan, Dick Acker, and Jay Krevsky went on to capture the rest of the singles matches and all of the doubles. The Mules sustained their first defeat at the hands of Haverford 8-1. The score did not show the closeness of the contest; all of the matches were hard fought and were lost by small margins. Taking to the road, the ’Berg tennismen lost their second consecutive match, this time to Buck- nell, 8 to 1. The Cardinal and Grey dropped all the singles matches and averted a shutout only when Alex Szewczak and Bob Stump won their doubles match. hob Stump in action. Ron Shane’s big serve.

In a close battle with Moravian, the Grey- hounds won out 5-4. The following match saw an impressive Swarthmore team hand Muhlenburg an 8-1 defeat. The Mules tasted victory for the last time when they hit winning form at Gettysburg. The rather weak Bullets were no match for the ’Berg tennis- men who went on to win, 6 to 3. The Mule swatters closed the season on the short end of a 6-3 score in their last two games. St. Joseph’s and Lafayette were the victors and they drove Muhlenberg’s 1954 season record to three wins against six losses. 150 INTRAMURALS 1952-53 The 1952-53 Muhlenberg College intramural sports jjrogram, under the direction of Czar Bill Ritter, included three sports.

Lambda Chi Alpha played good ball; and finished second in the league with a 6-2 record. Dick Derstine. Chick Bruno, Erank Marucci. and Eric Helsing headed the winning SPE team. The Sportsmen, undefeated winner ol League 1 honors, won the intramural basketball crown by heating Phi Sigma Kappa, League III titleholders. 76-5d. in the West Hall gym. The Sjjortsmen had previously beaten Alpha Tau Omega. League II champions, after running wild in regular season play. The high scoring Sportsmen, led by Dick “Bevo” Johnston, Bill Kern, and Sam Cozzens, tallied 112 points in one en- counter to set a record for total points in one game in intramural play. In intramural softball, the Star Cleaners showed the way, winning the championship w’ith a 7-1 season record. ATO. Phi Epsilon Pi, and Phi Sigma Ka|)|)a were contenders but were beaten out in the last week of play. Larry Friedman did most of the jjitching for the Cleaners, while Frank Cutko, Dick Rudf)l|ih. and Mike DelTufo provided the |)ow er w hich lirought them the championship. 151 INTRAMURALS INTRAMURALS 1953-54 The 1953-54 Intramural Sports program was under the direction of Coaches Ernie Fellows and Boh Hicks.

Undefeated Sigma Phi Epsilon won the intra- mural baseball trophy with a 9-3 win over ATO. Dennis Roth pitched a strong game for Sig Ep, and teammates Ernie Scarpa, John Wescoe, and Mike DelTufo provided the power at the plate which sparked the SPE’ers to their championship. ACTIVITIES ARCADE The Arcade is the literary magazine of Muhlen- berg College. In it, the editors attempt to discover and publish the best of student efforts in art, fiction and poetry. The Arcade is published twice yearly by tbe student staff under the able guidance of Dr. Harold L. Stenger. The Editors hope that it provides a medium of expression for every willing and creative student. Such a publication is necessary in a liberal arts college sucb as ours.

It is published yearly during the summer months and distributed to the student body and faculty at the beginning of the fall term. First published in 1923 by the Muhlenberg Christian Association, the “M” Book has remained as the channel through which the regulations of the college and the Student Council are brought to the attention of the student body. The “M” Book includes brief, informative sketches of all campus activities, as well as athletic schedules for the coming year, and up-to-date copies of the student body constitution and dormitory and faculty regulations. This guide to the campus usually becomes the Freshman’s first friend at college and serves as a refresher for the upper- classmen as they return to campus at the beginning of a new fall term.

KARL PECKMANN Adviser MR. PAUL GEBERT The Cardinal Key Society is a voluntary organization on campus composed of twenty-one members which dedicates its service to Muhlenberg College and Allentown. Cardinal Key men usher at assemblies, vesper services, home athletic events, Civic Little Theater plays. Mask and Dagger pro- ductions. the Movie Series and the Sunday Concert Series. In addition to the tasks they serve as official hosts and guides to visitors to the campus. Six members of the Class of 1942 founded the Society in the spring of 1940 and the constant influence and activity of the group has steadily increased to this time. Paul Gebert, former college registrar, was the first adviser and Dr. Claude Dierolf succeeded him in 1953. Standing, left to right: Zieger. Sidditter. Seated: Peckmann. Wood, Nardone. CARDINAL KEY SOCIETY 1953-54 Once again throughout the academic years of 1952, 1953, and 1954 the society proved that it was capable of fulfilling the ideals upon which it was founded. Every member acted as host to over 900 Boy Scouts in 1952 and more than 700 in 1953 as the scouts of the Lutheran churches of the Minister- ium of Pennsylvania visited the campus during the football season. On w ' eekends, the members conducted tours of the campus for prospective freshmen and their parents. Spring Day festivities were handled by them as well as duties at the Inauguration of Dr. Seegers in May of 1953 and at the Dedication of Memorial Hall in February of 1954.

Previous to this time, the Ciarla was a “Junior” yearbook — published by the members of the Junior Class at the end of their third year in college, with the events of that year and their pictures as Juniors in the book. The editors of the 1954 Ciarla propose to change the book to a “Senior” yearbook — published by the members of the Senior Class during their last year of college, with the events of that year and their pictures as Seniors in the book. In order to accomplisb this, the 1954 Ciarla was published as a “double” book, containing tbe events of the 1952-53 and 1953-54 college terms, together with the pictures of the Class of 1954. The editors hope that this book will be enjoyed by all who read it, and that it will effect a change to help make future Ciarlas even more complete and comprehensive. We are very grateful to the many men who have contributed to the production of the 1954 Ciarla. Our sincerest plaudits go to Mr. Michael O’Bradovich of the American Yearbook Company and to Dr. Truman Koehler, who so freely contributed their time and experience. To everyone who had a part in the publication of this book, thank you very sincerely. Left to right: Altman. Wanczyk, Lavin. Levy. Tihansky, Rosenlwrger. Left to right: Harms, Behrmann, Landis, W.

The Order of DeMolay is an international organiza- tion sponsored by Masonic orders. Named after Jacques DeMolay, a 13th century French knight, the order has as its purpose the perpetuation of ideals of the chivalrous age in which DeMolay lived and the order to which he belonged. All campus DeMolays are cordially invited to enter the circle of fellowship which supplies social activity as well as moral responsibility to its members. Mr. Harry A.

ANDREW ERSKINE The Forensic Council, organized in the spring of 1933, has as its purpose the promotion and foster- ing of public speaking activities at the college. Professor Ephriam B. Everitt was the first adviser and Dr. Andrew H. Erskine presently fills that position. Debating at almost any college or university in the United States has suffered as a result of the last war and this is also true for the Muhlenberg organ- ization. Eleven of its 12 members graduated in 1951 and Rodney Houck, the only remaining varsity member, had to start the nucleus of the organiza- tion. Eight men responded to a call for personnel and the Forensic Council now stands among the active organizations on campus. Left to right; Corgee, Harms, Dr. Erskine, Kistler, Schlittler. MUHLENBERG FORENSIC COUNCIL 1953-54 In the 1952-53 forensic contests Muhlenberg traveled to King’s College in Wilkes Barre, Pa. and the Hofstra Tournament held at Hofstra College at Hempstead, Long Island. At home the Council entertained Moravian College for Women and Lehigh University. Twenty schools in all were debated against. The Lehigh Valley high school debates, held at Parkland School in the spring months, were judged by members. In 1953-54 the activities were expanded so as to include tournaments at Temple University in Phila- delphia and the Congress sponsored by Penn State University at State College, in addition to the Hof- stra meet. In November, Muhlenberg was host to sixteen schools at an early season meet. St. Peter’s of New Jersey and Penn State Univ. were judged winners.

The group is a member of a state Political Science Society consisting of member students from about 60 different colleges and universities. The high point of the season for l.C.G. members is the annual convention held in Harrisburg where the students form a model govern- ment legislature and learn of the inner workings of national and state governmental agencies.

This organization is the training outlet for all students who are interested in acting or any phase of play production. Ih their asso- ciation with the club, the members are brought in- to contact with acting, make up, stage and lighting technique, publicity, costumes, and the many other mechanics of play production. Each semester the club presents one feature production and occasionally supplements it with one-act plays. Members of the student body are called to fill the male roles in all the club’s produc- tions. Women’s roles are capably filled by girls from Cedar Crest College and the Allentown community. Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” was the first M and D presentation of the 1952-53 college year, and it met with much approval. Dick Jentsch as John Worthing and Kermitt Gregory as Algernon Moncrieff gave convincing perform- ances, carrying off the subtle Oscar Wilde humor well. Gordan Edwards gave a humorous and note- worthy performance as the Rev. Canon Chausable. In the spring term production, “Blind Alley,” John Ziegler and Edwin Martin ended their college careers with excellent performances as Dr. Shelby and Hal Wilson, respectively. A fine supporting cast helped make this one of the best Mask and Dagger productions in recent years.

Dick Jentsch gave his usual convincing performance as Sergius, and the minor characters were all well cast and well played. “Ten Little Indians” by Agatha Christie was chosen as M and D’s spring presentation, and re- ceived enthusiastic receptions from its audiences. In the leads, senior Gordon Edwards gave an excellent performance as the homicidal Wargreaves, and freshman Buz Chaney scored as Captain Lom- bard. OFFICERS Adviser DR.

MUHLENBERG COLLEGE BAND 1952-53 OFFICERS 1952-53 President ROBERT SMITH Adviser PROF. LUDWIG LENEL The first group to take the name “Muhlenberg College Band” was organized in 1912. Professor C. Spenser Allen was its first adviser. In 1921 Mr. Martin Klinger of the Allentown Band was appointed Director. Since then, three professional directors have been associated with the band: Mr. Henry Soltys, Mr. Williard P. Schisler, and Mr. Anthony Jagnesak. The band has appeared in a number of important events off the campus, the chief of which was the inaugural parade of Harry S. Truman in 1949. Robert Smith acted as Band Director during the 1952-53 college term, and Mr. Jagnesak returned in 1953 to direct the band again. The Band in the autumn of 1952. MUHLENBERG COLLEGE BAND 1953-54 At early rehearsal, Inauguration morning, May 1953. The College Band played at most of the college football games, providing many interesting forma- tions at half times and snappy music throughout the games. The half time demonstrations were high- lighted by the baton-twirling exhibitions of Clarence Simmons, who was the drum major, and who had won national prizes for his skill in baton twirling. A Dixieland combo within the band, made up of Don Reilly, Sam Herrmann, Hal Salmon, and Dick Smith, was a hit with the spectators and livened up the quiet moments of the football games. The Band also participated in Allentown’s Hallowe’en Parade, the Homecoming Day Pajama Parade of the Muhlen- berg Freshmen, and played for the annual pilgrim- age of Boy Scouts to the college campus.

The members, united by a common loyalty to Jesus Christ, seek to understand the will of God through worship, study, and action, and strive to realize it in both personal and social living. To enable greater student participation in the program of the organization and to render it more responsive to the student needs, the M.C.A. is divided into four commissions; religious action, social action, personal and campus affairs, and world relatedness. All students become technical members of the association through college registra- tion and voting members by attending one of the weekly meetings held on Thursday afternoons. President Vice-Pres.

MUHLENBERG CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 1953-54 Perhaps the most worthwhile of the projects of M.C.A. is the lecture series it conducts which features speakers of note of pertinent topics con- nected together hy their relevance and relationship with Christianity and its influence in today’s world. In the 1952-53 school year Helmut Golatz, Allen- town attorney and Chaplain Bradford S. Abernethy of Rutgers University spoke. Then in 1953-54 the program expanded and four visitors presented dis- cussions. They were: The Reverends John Mayne and Oscar Schlessman, President Judge of the Le- high County Court James F. Henninger ’12, and associate editor of The Lutheran, Richard Sutcliffe. Special chapel speakers were The Reverends John Mangum and Ross Stover both from Philadelphia. M.C.A. supplies the manpower for Freshman Week Activities in the fall and arranges for daily prayers in the commons at each meal. Bible dis- cussion and study hours are also part of the pro- gram of M.C.A. And a fund raising drive each spring for deserving foreign students is a note- worthy undertaking of M.C.A.

As its avowed purpose it presents an unbiased view of campus life and its activities to the entire college community. The Weekly is the oldest student publication on campus. A college newspaper first appeared on the old campus at Fourth and Walnut Streets in 1883 under the title of the Muhlenberg Monthly. In 1888 the name The Muhlenberg was adopted. Finally, in 1914, when the publication began to appear on a weekly basis, it was christened the Muhlenberg Weekly, and that name has remained until today. Standing, left to right: Schlittler, E.

Even during the days of World War II, when armed service person- nel made up the majority of the student body, the W eekly was published regularly. It has long been the pride of the staff that the paper has never missed a publication date in its long existence. The newspaper is a student publication in every respect other than the mechanical printing of the paper. Faculty advisers have been elected but for all practical purposes, the students control the paper. The Associated Collegiate Press awarded the Weekly a Second Class Honor Rating in 1953 and this was advanced to a First Class Honor Rating for the school year 1953-54.

PRE-MEDICAL SOCIETY The Pre-Medical Society was founded in 1931 by Dr. John V. Shankweiler, ’21. Its purpose is to bring the medical profession closer to pre-medical students by securing prominent lecturers in the medical field and presenting programs of interest to students planning to enter this field. Annual visits to medical schools and hospitals also form an important part of the society’s program. The society admits into membership any student having inten- tions of entering the medical field who has com- pleted one year of college, attained at least a “C” average in Freshman chemistry, and has elected for his sophomore year courses requisite for entrance into medical school. The 1952-53 college year was highlighted by trips to Hahnemann Medical School and St. Luke’s Hospital. Meetings featured speakers and topics such as Dr. C. H. lobst — “The Electroencepholo- gram,” Dr. R. Friedman of Temple University — “The History of the Discovery of the Itch Mite,” and Dr. E. T. Barnard of the Baker Chemical Com- pany — “Plasma Extendors.” The Pre-Medical Society was very active during the 1953-54 college term. Trips were made to Temple University School of Medicine and all of the area hospitals. Speakers included Dr. Robert Turnbach, speaking on “Electrocardiography,” Dr. D. E. Stader, who lectured on “The Endocrine System,” and Dr. William Parkinson, Dean of Temple Medical School, who discussed medical school requirements and procedures.

RUSSELL SMART The Science Club was organized to promote student interest and understanding in the field of the physical sciences. Membership is -open to interested students. The club meets bi-monthly and endeavors to bring outstanding research and in- dustrial personalities in the field of science to the campus to present talks on various, current aspects of science. The meetings give the members perti- nent information on their topics of study, and also acquaint them with the obstacles they may expect to encounter in their personal undertakings.

Topics discussed during the 1952-53 college year were: “Plasma Extenders, ” “Nuclear Reac- tors,” and “Problems of the Graduate Student.” The club also acted as host to the Association of Student Chemists at its annual meeting on our campus. During the 1953-54 school year all the physical sciences were represented as both faculty members and representatives of industry presented talks sucb as these: “Two Dimensional Space,” “Copper Min- ing and Processing,” and “Non-aqueous Systems of Chemistry.” Field trips took the group to the R.C.A. laboratories for lectures on color television and to Haverford College to bear Dr. Enrico Fermi speak on high-energy physics. The social highlight of the year was the inau- guration of an annual science club banquet.

MORRIS S. GRETH MR. DELBERT BARCLAY The Sociological Society of Muhlenberg Col- lege was organized in April 1950 in order to provide a closer fellowship among students interested in sociology. The various aspects of sociological prob- lems are presented in monthly meetings by students and guest speakers in an attempt to create an understanding of them and to develop a more scien- tific attitude toward social issues which concern citizens in a democracy. The Society sponsored a field trip to New York City in 1953, visiting Bellvue Hospital, the Bowery, Chinatown, and other points of interest. In 1954 the field trip took the Society members to Harlem, Welfare Island, and the Museum of Natural History. Back row, left to right: Seip, Ebling, Strohl, Richter, Trexler.

And in the spring of 1953 a combined program with the Psychological Club presented a symposium entitled “Marriage and tbe Family.” Both these meetings were open to the community and the student body. Candid observations bene- fited those who attended the stimulating program. At the annual banquet in 1954 Dr. Russell Jacoby, professor of Sociology at Lehigh University presented a research paper dealing with the world population problems facing society.

ROBERT LORISH The Muhlenberg College Student Council is the official governing organization of the Student Body, and is subject in authority only to the statutory regulations of the Board of Trustees and the Faculty, as specified in the Student Body Constitu- tion adopted in 1939. Its purpose is to serve as the supreme executive organ for directing student affairs and their many ramifications. Initial steps toward the formation of a Student Council at Muhlenberg were made in 1910 with the establishment of an advisory group of students. A provisional constitution was drafted, and the pre- cedent for today’s highly integrated and active Student Council was established. Seated, left to right; Turner, Wagner. Jordan, Smith, Brucker, Heffner, Shortridge, Kistler, Thiel, Druckenmiller, Coughlin. STUDENT COUNCIL 1953-54 The Council in weekly meetings interests itself in all of the organic problems of each organization. It allocates funds to most of the groups and checks their progress and projects with the stated aims of their constitutions. In 1953 an enlarged Commons committee, an active Pep Rally committee, and a vigilant Dormi- tory committee were responsible for the success of the council. Anthony Rauth led a student sub- scription drive for the Development fund which up to this time has netted the college over 40,000 dollars. In 1954 a committee was formed that improved the social relations between Muhlenberg and Cedar Crest College. Council generally proceeds at a conservative pace which allows it to become fully accepted by the college administration and held in confidence by the student body. Discussion on an honor system for Muhlenberg was sponsored by the 1954 council; this was the climax to their year’s work.

The major project of the “M” Club during the 1953-54 school year was sponsoring a campus community chest drive which netted over 500 hundred dollars in cash and pledges. A room in the newly constructed Memorial Hall has been set aside for use as an “M” Club room, and it will be furnished and equipped for the members’ use in the next term. President Vice-Pres. Sec’y.

Stine, professor of philosophy, the philosophy clubs of Muhlenberg College and Mor- avian College united on May 1, 1930 and formed this fraternity which recognizes scholarship and interest in philosophy. Alpha chapter meets twice a month at which time members of the Muhlenberg faculty and facul- ties of other institutions of learning present papers of philosophic interest. At times students preside and present their papers, and general discussion follows most meetings. Papers usually feature the evidence of the influence of philosophy in the fields of art, literature, politics, theology and social thought.

OMICRON DEI.TA KAPPA Since its establishment at Muhlenberg College in 1930, the Alpha Epsilon Circle of Omicron Delta Kappa, national honorary activities fraternity, has been regarded as the highest honor society to which a Muhlenberg man can attain membership. The Society was founded at Washington and Lee Univer- sity in 1914. Of significant note is the fact that Omicron Delta Kappa became the first of all national college honoraries to recognize and honor achievement in extra-curricular activities and to encourage the development of general campus citizenship. As its major project of the year, the Alpha Epsilon Circle initiated and administered a Student Faculty Evaluation Poll designed to improve student-faculty relations.

EDWARD STEVENS Eta Sigma Phi is the national honorary classics fraternity on campus. Alpha Rho chapter was formed in 1931 as an outgrowth of the Classical Club. The fraternity has always attempted to keep alive an interest in the classics and to support an appreciative feeling for the ancient languages. The organization also aims to provide a closer union of those students interested in Grecian and Roman culture. Left to right: Wilde, Kistler, Boyd, Ansons, Geehr.

The Alpha Rho circle of Eta Sigma Phi is composed of those students who have taken at least two years of a classical language and who have shown sufficient interest and proficency in the study of the classics to be deemed worthy of membership. Throughout the year the circle holds meetings at which classical topics are presented and discussed. Muhlenberg faculty men give most of the papers and several times a year men from neighboring institutions lead the discussions. President Vice-Pres. Sec’y Treas.

The fraternity, organized at the University of Arkansas, was established on the Muhlenberg campus in 1929 through the efforts of Dr. James E. Swain and the late Dr. Henry Muller. To be eligible for membership, an under- graduate must have a junior rating, have at least twelve semester hours of history, and must be majoring in history. In addition his over-all average must be an 80 or better with an 85 average for his history courses. The chapter meets monthly, at which time dis- cussions are held of an historical, political, or eco- nomic nature. The chapter also sponsors a prize awarded at Commencement for the best historical paper written by a member of the senior class. PHI ALPHA THETA 204 PHI SIGMA IOTA Lambda Chapter of Phi Sigma Iota, national honorary Romance languages fraternity, was estab- lished on the Muhlenberg campus in 1928. Its purpose is to honor those students who have dis- tinguished themselves in the field of Romance lan- guages, as well as in general college leadership. The fraternity also aims to acquaint its mem- bers with the various cultural and intellectual phases of Romance language countries. Meetings are held monthly, at which time student papers are presented and commented on by the group. Dr. Anthony Corbiere, founder of the local chapter, is the national executive secretary of the fraternity and also acts as editor of the national publication, The News Letter.

PI DELTA EPSILON 1953-54 Pi Delta Epsilon was organized at Syracuse University in 1909. It is the oldest national hon- orary collegiate journalism fraternity in the country. Its purpose is to evaluate the cause of collegiate journalism, foster the mutual welfare of student publications, and to reward the journalists working on those publications for their superior efforts, services, and accomplishments by admission into its membership. The Muhlenberg Chapter of Pi Delta Epsilon has, during the past year, taken as its major project the revising and editing of the student handbook, the “M” Book. Efforts leading toward the publica- tion of a much needed chapel brochure were also undertaken ; and the policies and criticisms of the various campus publications were discussed and clarified.

ROBERT DRUCKENMILLER PKT Ever since its formation in the 1920’s, the Interfraternity Council has functioned as the in- tegrating body among the social fraternities on campus. The Council has always aimed to strengthen the relationship between the fraternities and the college administration, and to make and enforce regulations concerning problems which may arise among the fraternities. The IFC sponsors inter- fraternity sports competition, and awards trophies to the winning fraternities in football, basketball, baseball, and bowling competition. Tbe IFC also awards a trophy to the fraternity with the best float in the annual Homecoming day parade in the fall. One of the highlights of the social calendar is the IFC Ball, annually presented by the Council as part of the spring IFC weekend.

Each social fraternity on campus automatically becomes a member of the Council, contingent upon their acceptance by the faculty and administration. Each member fraternity elects three representatives to the Council. The four officers change each year, with each office being held by a different fraternity in succession. The Interfraternity Council is the supreme gov- erning body of all the social fraternities, but each of its rules and regulations is subject to review by the Student Council, with final approval by the faculty and administration.

The fraternity was born at Richmond, Virginia on September 11, 1865, and its first chapter was established at the Virginia IMilitary Institute in Lexington, Virginia, the same year. The Alpha Iota chapter at Muhlen- berg is the second oldest chapter north of the Mason- Dixon Line, and is the oldest one on the college campus. It has had an uninterrupted existence since October 14, 1881. During the past two years the national frater- nity has become a leader among the other frater- nities by raising tbe academic standards of each of its member chapters. As their Help Week project, the newly initiated men worked several days at the city’s Day Nursery. The three house parties held each year were well planned by the Social committee as were the numerous other social functions during the years. The chapter was bost to national Executive Secretary, Stewart Daniels, and the member chapters from the Middle Atlantic States in March of 1953 at a biannual Conclave. Dr. C. S. L. Raby, National Ritual Counselor visited Alpha Iota in 1954. In athletic contests Alpha Iota placed second in interfraternity competition for both years. 212 LAMBDA CHI ALPHA The Nu-Epsilon Zeta Chapter at Muhlenberg College has been a part of the social life of the campus since December 12, 1931, at which time Theta Kappa Nu merged with Lambda Chi Alpha to form the present chapter. Lambda Chi Alpha, formed at Boston University in 1909, is now the largest national fraternity with 142 active chapters. The Muhlenberg chapter house at 407 N. 23rd St. has been the home of Lambda Chi since its inception in 1940. Since that time continual im- provements throughout the house have been made until now an adequate, comfortable home exists that can house nineteen brothers easily. The most recent improvements have been the painting of the fire escape, recreation room ceiling, and kitchen. The commissary with its cook, serves three meals daily to brothers during a five day week. Lambda Chi men were able to capture the Interfraternity Council’s 1953 Sports Trophy for amassing the most points against opponents. In 1953-54 the chapter placed in strong contention for the Trophy but was not able to retain it. The social season activities were capped by House parties and the annual spring picnic. Party themes and decorations ranged from a Hunting Lodge theme to one depicting Old Baghdad.

Sec’y ALEXANDER ADELSON On November 23, 1904, at the City College of New York, seven men met to organize a club which was to grow and develop into one of the largest non- sectarian social fraternities in the United States. In 1921 Phi Epsilon Pi took its place among the other nationals when it was admitted into the National Interfraternity Conference as a senior member. Alpha Mu chapter is not a newcomer to the college campus as it was installed on February 6, 1932 after the dissolution its local predecessor, Gamma chapter of Sigma Lambda Chi. Although Phi Epsilon Pi is a small fraternity at Muhlenberg, it is found to be a hard working group that dedicates itself to the betterment of the college as well as the individual through social, athletic, scholastic and fraternal activity. Their house has been located on South Madison Street since 1948. The social life of the “PEP” boys is one of their outstanding trademarks. The annual Sweet- heart Ball in the spring of each year is a tradition- ally good climax to an active social calendar. Interest in student activities has steadily increased over the past years and noteworthy men have gained more responsible positions as a result of this interest. In intramural athletics, softball is the favorite fol- lowed closely by bowling, and Phi Ep usually does well in both sports. 218 PHI KAPPA TAU In 1906, a group of non-fraternity men from the campus of Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, l)anded together to combat a vicious political ma- chine which completely dominated their campus. The result of that is the modern Phi Kappa Tau frater- nity which has always emphasized the innate worth of the individual, the democratic nature of the or- ganization and, the Christian ideals so important to its founders. Eta chapter, formally installed at Muhlenberg in 1918 had previously been the Alpha Sigma local fraternity. 1952-53 and 1953-54 were among the most sig- nificant and successful years of all those enjoyed by the Phi Tau’s. Each houseparty seemed bigger and better than the one preceding it and the brother- hood became more closely knit; and as a result of this spirit of fraternalism Phi Tau was able to cap- ture the Interfraternity Council trophies in bowling, basketball, football, and in the homecoming float contests for both years, enabling PKT to retain permanent possession of the fine Homecoming Trophy. The fraternity held its annual Christmas party entertaining orphans living at the Good Sheperd Home. The house also had many fine social week- ends, and the season’s activities came to a spectacu- lar close with the Spring Eormal houseparty in early May. President Vice-Pres. Sec’y Treas.

The national fraternity was organized at the University of Massachusetts on March 15, 1873. It has grown steadily and now consists of sixty-five active chapters. Upsilon Triton began in humble surroundings occupying League Hall in East Hall. Early in 1950, the brothers moved into the present home at 401 N. 23rd St. Improvements to the house are constantly being made. The fine social functions of the fraternity do much to inspire and formulate the activities of PSK. Coffee and doughnut dances after athletic events, spirited weekends, and the annual Pounder’s Day dinner-dance are among the highlights of the sea- son’s activities. In Interfraternity competition the Phi Sig’s have been able to place in contention in intramural bas- ketball and baseball. However, fate has not secured for them the first place honors. The fine meals prepared in the commissary are a part of the good management displayed by the brothers as they run the house. There is much for the Phi Sig at Muhlenberg to look back upon with appreciation but the greatest satisfaction comes to him as he promotes brother- hood, scholarship, and character, principles on which his fraternity was founded. I 2 24 SIGMA PHI EPSILON The national organization of Sigma Phi Epsi- lon is in its fifty-third year, having been founded at the University of Richmond, Virginia, on Nov. 1, 1901. It has grown to the extent of becoming the third largest national fraternity in existence today. The Pennsylvania Iota chapter of Sig Ep was installed on the Muhlenberg campus April 10. 1938. Under the adverse conditions of World War II, the fraternit)’ left the campus, but was again reactivated in 1947. Since 1952 the chapter has been located at the former residence of Ur. and Mrs. James Edgar Swain. In athletic competition, the brothers were able to cop the football trophy of the Interfraternity Council for the third consecutive year. Many of the varsity men on the college teams wear the Golden Heart also. Many of the best social functions on the campus are sponsored by SPE and tbe bouseparty w ' eek- ends find the brothers eagerly awaiting the enter- tainment provided by the capable social committee. Eourteen seniors left in June but their places have been filled by twelve newly initiated brothers from the Class of 1957. The brothers are looking forward to a prosperous year wherein the traditions of Sig Ep will continue to be maintained. OFFICERS 1952-53 President RICHARD DERSTINE Vice-Pres. ALBERT STEIN Secy.
